ICD-10 Implementation Delayed until 2015

The U.S. Senate passed the House's Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014, which delays cuts to physicians' Medicare rates and also puts off implementation of ICD-10 until 2015 at the earliest. President Obama signed the legislation on April 1. Several key questions remain unanswered including, “Will October 1, 2015, become the new deadline?” and “Will CMS allow organizations that are ready to implement ICD-10 to do so voluntarily?”

MPCA continues to monitor ICD-10 news and will be sharing more through the eUpdate and our communication networks. MPCA is also working to alter previous training and learning community schedules to reconstitute plans with the new deadline in mind. We will be announcing more details in late April.
